Survey Taking Money
Finding a part time job that both fits your schedule and pays well can be quite a challenge. That is why when you find an employment opportunity like survey taking, you should take advantage of it. I will be honest, you will not get rich taking surveys. You can, however, earn a very nice part time income. Survey taking involves both local survey work in Cedar Rapids and online work. Let’s take a minute and learn how to get involved with both types.
In Person Work
When I am talking about in person work, I am talking about paid focus groups. These are put together by local market research companies to discuss new products and services. These can be from local companies or from national companies. The best thing about this work is that it pays well, but this is also a problem. Because of the pay, the jobs are hard to get and very competitive. You should still try to get in person work but do not come to depend on it. To get started, you need to get your name on databases. Here are a few local companies you can start with.
- Vernon Research
- Dan Wiese Marketing
Online survey taking has a bit of a negative image with some people who have been burned by scam websites. These are easy to avoid though, simply NEVER pay to join a website. That is it. The great thing about online work is that you can do it anywhere and anytime, it is in great supply and it is easy to get. It pays less per individual survey but you can compensate for this because of the volume. With a little practice, you can get speedy enough at surveys to take 4, 5, 6 or even 8 surveys an hour. Then you start making some nice money. First, you need to make a list of good websites to draw work from. There are some great ones at the top of this page.
Eliminate distractions so that you can concentrate and be efficient.
- Always Be Adding
Always be looking to add survey websites to your list. If they are good keep them, if they do not produce, delete them.
- Be Organized
Keep a separate browser folder for survey sites and consider getting an email address just for your survey work.
